    Man am I P-O'd after hearing the 5-day forecast this morning.

    For the past week and a half the day time highs have been between 5 and 20 degrees F above average. I was looking forward to an early Spring after the cr*ppy winter we've been having. I was even considering using some tape to patch the dart-holes in my Michael Mann poster while clearing out space to build a shrine to the Holy Hockey Stick! Even my mpg for the current tank of gas was approaching 60mpg.

    However, beginning this weekend and into next week, temps will be at or below seasonable averages. And Sunday night they're forecasting rain mixed with snow! What a wonderful drive into [email protected]^k to look forward to on Monday.

    No, the warm temps lately aren't climate change, it's just weather. :(

    Rats! If you can't trust AGW, who can you trust???

    Well it serves as proof some folks can't tell weather from climate.

    Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get.

    Sorry to hear about the crappy weather. I busted my bum on all the snow we had up here this year! I have been really looking forward to the predicted temperature rise, but nothing. :mad:

    Well there is always next year and another 2 Billion and change.

    Denier alert!

    Anybody happen to notice the above normal temps this week through out much of N. America?

    In far northern Ontario, where we should see ~+1c for a high, and ~-18 for a low we have seen temps in the high teen C (Over 60f!) for nearly two weeks running. Problem for us is that we rely on ice roads, and they are unsafe more than a month early!

    Not only that, but I looked out at my backyard - it's perfectly flat! So much for this so-called "The world is round" theory!

    There's no need for a denier alert icarus. I stated my position in an earlier thread (look it up if you have to).

    Fact is, high temps today came in around 65F which is ~20F above the seasonal average here in SE Michigan. And the lows tonight will be in the low to mid 40s F.

    What is bumming me out is that the high tomorrow will be in the mid-40s F, which btw is seasonal for this time of year. Along with that, we're due for some precipitation tomorrow night through Sunday night. If the overnight lows drop as much as the daytime highs will, then the probability of snow is pretty high. How much, if any, snow will stick is another question. The seasonable temps are currently due to continue through Tuesday and what they will do after that is just speculation.

    This is weather, not climate change.

    I read the original post as being satirical. Since the media can't/won't seem to use the term "climate change" (probably guessing that the general public can't work out what that means) thus uses a simpler, easier to understand term "global warming", that the OP is pointing out that, despite the media hype......calling it global warming isn't making his neighborhood warmer this weekend.

    If this wasn't a satirical post, then I've completely missed the point and am befuddled.
